My father-in-law was a dermatologist with a specialty in STD: when he first
began seeing clients in the early 80s with what we'd now call AIDS I
remember that he conferred with colleagues about these unusual cases--e.g.
young men with Karposi's sarcoma, a disease hitherfore restricted to
Mediterranean men in their 80s and 90s--but no one had a name for it.  I
would look to professional journals (JAMA &c.) for early mentions.
